# Galera HTTP Check

This is a small script to provide the status of a galera cluster over http.

With a (mysql) galera node if it is in a donor or joiner state, the port will
be up but the server is not accepting queries.

This provides an http endpoint (/check-galera-status) which will return 500
if the server is down or galera is in a non-serving state. It will return
200 otherwise.

The body returned provides details.
